We stay at Nkambeni Camp for four days three nights, it was arranged by Nhongo Safari. The location of the camp is just nearby the Numbi Gate. We saw some of the animals like kudu and impala during the trails to the camp. They were so close by!!! The front desk sent on a glass of fresh mango beverage as...

We loved being able to spend the night in a tented cabin with comforts (AC, bathroom) right at Kruger Park. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. The food was absolutely delicious! Awesome Kruger experience!

The rooms are functional located in a horseshoe from the main complex although at night you can hear the nearby freight train line. The dining room is vast to cope with the large number of guests which the bar fails to do. The food was ok. However, the main reason for being there are the game drives which are great...

Beautiful camp just outside the Numbi gate of the Kruger Park. Highly recommend!! The staff were very friendly and attentive. The accommodation was great with aircon, mosquito nests and an inside & outside shower. The beds are very comfortable, but we were forced up quite early by all the tourists off on the bush walk.The breakfast and dinner buffet provided...

The tents are very nice with AC and very well furnished. They have an indoor and outdoor shower in each room; very different experience. Breakfast and dinner buffets were excellent with lots of choice for vegetarians as well. There is free coffee/tea all through the day. The camp is right outside Numbi gate of Kruger national park and we were...

A very comfortable lodge with luxurious tentes and a bonus - open air showers. The pool and reception areas are very nice and welcoming. Aircon in all tents is hugely appreciated. Hippos and rhinos can be observed just from the pool area.

So I'll start by saying that the rooms were nice, the A/C was excellent, and the pool looked great. However the food was not great and I wouldn't recommend dinner. But, our tour guide was beyond amazing. I'm trying to find out what company it was because the note I made was accidentally deleted. Alnero (Quagga) agreed to take us...

There are pros and cons to this place. The actual lodge is fantastic, people are friendly, the rooms are great, clean with aircon. There is a pool that over looks a little dam where you can see hippos. Elephants came right to the fence one night and we could see and hear them trumpeting, it was fantastic. The negative side...

This truly is the ideal place for the Safari holiday. Just at the numbi gates not far to travel to get into the park. It's quiet setting only adds to its charm. The regular hippos in the river behind the camp is a welcome attraction. All members of the staff here are absolutely wonderful!
